Put on your "regular user" hat

Unfortunately, there are a number of niners who are incapable of that. They'll rant for hours about something completely irrelevant claiming that the average user must have it a certain way or else. I must have gotten access to a Super Secret build of Windows, because my desktop is anything but crippled, it quite simply rocks. </rant> Queue violent reaction in 3...2...1...

Anyway, my wife does something similar with her Surface RT, although it lasts long enough that she doesn't always think about charging it until Windows complains. She's easily a Power User+ and thinks it's great on tablet, desktop and laptop.

Sometimes an organization needs somebody with an iron fist to run things for a while. They are able to beat things into shape and bring a vision that otherwise might have been muddled. The problem is that it's not always a good idea for them to stay around after they've played the axe-man role.
